Hollywood star Daniel Craig is franchised for the James Bond movie. Craig recently spilled beans about his hesitation to join the franchise and appear in the fifth film, “No Time To Die” reports an entertainment portal during an interview with a magazine.
“I was never going to do one again. I was like, ‘Is this work really genuinely worth this, this whole thing?'” Craig, who in the past was outspoken about his complicated feelings about taking up his role as 007, said of making the fifth film.
“And I didn’t feel… I physically felt really low. So the prospect of doing another movie was just like, it was way off the cards. And that’s why it has been five years,” Daniel Craig added.
When the role of the special agent was originally offered to Craig he said he was reluctant. “I remember saying to them early on, ‘I can’t do a Sean Connery impression. I can’t be Pierce (Brosnan)’…I could be anonymous in the world. It was genuinely like, my life is going to get f**ked if I do this,” the actor stated.
“It was literally like, ‘F**k off. I don’t f**king want this. How dare you? How dare you offer this to me?’ It’s just ludicrous. But it was all self defense.” And now Craig does not seem to have any doubts about the end of his time playing Bond.
“I’m okay. I don’t think I would have been if I’d done the last film and that had been it,” he said of the 2015 film “Spectre”. “But this, I’m like… Let’s go. Let’s get on with it. I’m fine.”
